Frontiers Executive Director meets Canadian PM

on Mon, 06/21/2010 - 12:44

On May 27, 2010 3 p.m. a delegation of influential Hispanic Canadians from across Canada met with Hon. Stephen Harper at Parliament Hill.

The Spanish speaking delegation organized by the Canadian Hispanic Business Association from five different provinces included Frontiers Foundation Executive Director Dr. Marco A. Guzman who hails from the Aymara town of Huarina, Bolivia and was one of the (2007) award winners. Dr. Guzman had the chance to convey a brief message on the work of our made- in-Canada Aboriginal voluntary service organization on the number one priority in this country: affordable housing.

He also has delivered a thank you note to PM’s office with a copy to Hon. Diane Finley for the opportunity to meet him personally.

The financial support of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) enables Frontiers Foundation to develop our “Standing Tree to Standing Home” activity in Quebec (Algonquin), Ontario (Ojibwa), and Manitoba (Cree) communities.

Uplifting Operation Beaver Concert

on Tue, 05/11/2010 - 00:52

On Saturday May 1, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. former Frontiers Foundation Board Member Larry Leone Niford welcomed everyone to our charitable fund raising concert held at Rosedale United Church in Toronto. Chief Leone spoke briefly about the nature of our Aboriginal voluntary service organization and introduced the East York Barbershoppers chorus under the direction of Pat Hannon.

The East York Barbershoppers, this year, are celebrating the 60th anniversary as a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, an a cappella singing organization with 30,000 members in 800 chapters. They have raised close to half a million dollars for worthy causes such as the one for Frontiers Foundation. This group of singers will continue giving guest performances to different community service projects and local charities.

Most of the 34 members of this chorus join for the thrill of bringing their unique style of 4-part close harmony chords, and then get hooked on the strong fellowship that soon develops by

Disaster in Haiti and AIDS centre and School

on Fri, 01/29/2010 - 20:16

Lisette Casimir (in red) and Haiti school survive quake

Frontiers Foundation thanks everyone who has helped out by their past contributions. There are many great success stories about our organization, but the most topical is our very recently built Aids Centreand school, pictured here, in St. Michel de L'Attalaye, Haiti. The pictures tell you what a great, great project it is. We are very pleased to report that the school/AIDS centre has survived the earthquake.

Unfortunately, as you are all aware, food is scarce and our students, parents and surrounding community need help desperately. Fortunately, we have a direct pipeline to Haiti and we are able to help out in a quick and efficient manner. Our close relationship with the Mayor of St. Michel de L'Attalaye - Lisette Casimir (the woman in the red shirt) helps us ensure fast and efficient delivery - and she also used to work for our Founding Director, here in Toronto.

Luke is volunteering on Frontiers project in Inuvik, Northwest Territories. Luke is a professional actor who has appeared in quite a few major films, and is now applying his experience in teaching video production and other subjects to Inuvik students. He is bringing that talent and passion to the students who have begun to make their own interesting films in class.

You can see some of his photos from the last few months in Inuvik.
